Charlie Daniels Celebrating His Birthday by Giving Back
Charlie Daniels is having a big birthday dinner to celebrate his 79th trip around the sun, and you're invited!
On Tuesday (Oct. 27) Daniels will host a celebration dinner at Nashville's the Palm restaurant with some of his famous and military friends to benefit the Journey Home Project, a "non-profit organization Daniels co-founded to assist veterans and their families in meeting their financial, educational and healthcare needs as they make their integration back into civilian life."
"I'm Comin' Over" singer Chris Young is scheduled to perform during the evening, maybe even with his own rendition of "Happy Birthday" for the guest of honor. Country newcomer Ryan Weaver will also join the entertainment lineup.
Honorary speaker Lieutenant General (Retired) Keith M. Huber will speak at the event on behalf of veterans and Middle Tennessee State University, where the funds from the Journey Home Project will be donated to in order to assist in the completion of the school's new Veterans and Military Families Center on campus. The evening will also include a silent auction with valuable signed merchandise and rare memorabilia up for grabs.
Earlier in the summer, Daniels hosted his 40th annual Volunteer Jam in Nashville, with all of the proceeds also benefitting the Journey Home Project. That night's performance raised over $300,000 for U.S. veterans, military members and their families, bringing out some of Music City's finest, including Trace Adkins, Eric Church, Craig Morgan and many more, so who knows might also show up this coming Tuesday.
Tickets for the birthday bash are still available, and can be purchased through e-mail inquiry here.
